I am so glad and relieved that SL does not face India for the finals, because the result would be a win for India, not through skill but through corruption.
I hope SL can beat Australia convincingly in the 3 finals. Our fielding and bowling has to improve. Also the tail-enders should be coached to bat properly, unlike the stupid way Malinga faced Australian bowling. Surely, he can bat better than that.
